Our Club

Cranbrook has had a competitive swim club since the early 70’s. It has produced National level swimmers in every decade since, and continues to provide programs that encourage its members to make the most of their athletic talent. The objective of the Cranbrook Triton Swim Club is to provide a program of development and training which will enable every swimmer to develop to the full extent of their individual level of interest, commitment and ability.

All swimmers who join our program are instructed in the basic skills for competitive swimming, learning to balance in the water and swim efficiently. Our practices involve constant activity, so that swimmers’ endurance improves. All swimmers participate in competitions appropriate to their level of skill and experience; progress is measured against each swimmer’s own previous best performance.

The Cranbrook Triton program was developed on the belief that swimming offers valuable and exciting experience in a young person’s life. In addition to the structured swim training program, the club offers social events, new and lasting friendships, travel and most important of all - FUN!  


The objectives of the club are:

  1. To promote, foster and teach the art and sport of competitive swimming;  
  2. To foster self-development;  
  3. To teach sportsmanship and foster leadership;  
  4. To provide training and competition to ALL swimmers at levels consistent with ability, desire, and performance levels;  
  5. To develop skills in a sport that can be enjoyed at all times;  
  6. To provide an environment that promotes enjoyment of physical recreation; and  
  7. To provide opportunities for social and emotional development.
